Don't water Prickly Pear Cacti until they grow roots.
It may take 30-60 days. If you water while they are in the soil before
roots, they may rot. However, even though the pad may look dead, it may
grow a new pad within a year. It does not matter which way they are
planted. However, you typically get roots faster when they are laying
flat on the soil. The down side of the pad will begin to grow roots.
